  • Total Time: 31 minutes


Soft and spongy little black sesame madeleines, with a hint of nutty black sesame flavour!


  • 85 g unsalted butter (cut into small pcs)
  • 2 eggs
  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 10 g honey
  • Pinch of salt
  • 75 g cake or plain flour
  • 20 g unsweetened black sesame powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  1. Melt butter over bain marie or in the microwave. Set aside to cool.
  2. Place eggs, sugar, honey and salt into a large bowl. Gently whisk to break up the eggs and mix the ingredients well.
  3. Sift in flour, black sesame powder and baking powder into (2). Mix till there are no traces of flour left.
  4. Add in cooled melted butter and combine well.
  5. Pour batter into piping bag(s) – I used 2 x small piping bags. Place batter into fridge to chill for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  6. After resting the batter, preheat oven to 200C. Grease madeleine pan with melted butter. Ensure that you grease the mold well. Fill pan with batter, filling about 3/4 or nearly full.
  7. Bake in preheated oven at 200C for 4 mins. Turn down the temperature to 180C, and bake for further 4 mins (or 2 mins for mini size). Madeleines are baked when skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  8. Let madeleines cool slightly in the pan for 1-2 mins. Knock out the madeleines onto cooling rack, or remove with a skewer. Cool completely before storing in air-tight container.
